Hi ashish,
Please click on this link for the last updated drivers posted by Asus for the K8V-MX motherboard.
After reading the trouble you seem to have this might not be windows hanging on installing a simple driver. You're trouble may be caused by the primary hard drive not allowing windows to write to the drive. There is no other reason why windows would hang. Window should load completely with out you having to install any specific driver from the Asus CD. Motherboard drivers like the LAN driver can wait until windows has finished installing its self.
(This is normal for a windows install).
Suggest you go to the hard disk drive, manufacture's web site & download their tool /utilities, setup software. (This software works out side of windows in a dos like mode). You can create either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk which will allow you to check the drive for internal errors. The software will clear the sectors & repair the hard disk drive if needed allowing window to install. You can also use the software utilities to format the drive rather than using windows. This will ensure there is nothing wrong with the drive. Than load you're window CD into the CD-ROM & install windows. When windows has finished installing you can than install the driver's from the Asus CD. Than go to the above Asus web side & download & install any driver's that are newer than on the CD. Lastly update windows to SP2. Do not install SP3 until you are 100% sure windows & the motherboard are running perfect.

Good Luck! Take you're time.

While loading windows it freezes

You are not saying what version of Windows you are trying to install. There is a common issue with WIN XP installation where at the "33 minutes to go" mark, during device installation, the system just hangs forever. This occurs when WINDOWS is trying to identify and load default drivers for all the motherboard components. If there is a defective component, the install will hang at that point. It is said that after a few successive attempts that WINDOWS will continue past the error, but my experience has not shown this to be true. In my case it was time for a new motherboard.

Windows xp installing failed

I assume you are trying to install XP from a self-burned CD.
Did you slipstream SP2 or SP3 in it?

If so, try to burn a DVD instead of a CD. I had that problem once too and followed some advice I found here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Computer keeps re-booting while installing any operating system

Were the two power supplies you tried inclusive of the original failed drive or not. In other words did you try a total a 3 power supplies including the one that failed?

If not, please do so. That is, immediately analyze the original known part failure, the power supply or its connection to the board(s) you have tried.

Congratulations for such an exhaustive process of elimination.

If your drivers are from trusted source just click ok continue when the windows signing for drivers pop up window appear.

Now if you click ok and then the system fails to load and then give you a blue error screen, its caused by either
  1. The hardware or its drivers cause conkflict to the system, because your drivers are not from a source you can trust and they are not in compliance with windows OS features and as a result can not run in a windows OS. So get a fresh copy of the drivers from a trusted source preferably the product manufacturer
  2. The hardware itself is faulty and on installing to XP it causes a conflict in which case you can try the Sound card on a different PC and see if it runs, otherwise you need to replace it.
  3. (Assuming XP has finished loading the OS) Sometimes XP fails to unistall the previous drivers, if this is that case goto the device manager (windows icon >right click > properties >hardware > device manager) select ypur current sound card unistall the driver that is there and then restart your machine and load the new drivers again
